I have just had my 53rd birthday and have had diagnosed AF since 2009 although I suspect I was suffering for some years prior to the diagnosis. I was deemed an unsuitable case for abalation and have since gone into persistant AF. I am taking 10 mg bisoprolol daily and 70mg aspirin, I was taking digoxin also but it knocked me off my feet and so I no longer take it. My lifestyle has completely changed, I suffer from brain fog and I now tire very easily, suffer from breathlessness I find it difficult to bend due to the shortness of breath and also struggle with hills and stairs. On my last visit to the heart rhythm practitioner he said that my pulse despite being in AF was 'steady', I have thought about this since the visit and don't quite understand his meaning, could anyone clarify this for me and does anyone suffer from similar symptoms as I am with their AF?
